*Update: Have watched the movie,and though the start was a but slow and fragmented, it was ably compensated by the eye candy that is Eddie Peng , Angelababy and the island of Lang Tengah. There is a nice twist in the middle and a nice sweet ending. All in all the movie is great for romantics and fans of said eye-candies*
This is a sequel of sorts to the 2000 Hong Kong movie starring Sammi Cheng and Ritchie Ren Summer Holiday. The movie was filmed in Pulau Redang and substantially increased tourism to the island.
This film, called Love You You (i know the English title makes no sense) 11 years later is filmed in Lang Tengah another island off Terengganu, Malaysia with lovely pristine beaches.Lang Tengah island is decidedly less commercialized but just as beautiful.Pulau Redang is now so saturated with tourists and not as pristine as it used to be.
The latest installation stars one of the best looking people in the Chinese entertainment industry at the moment, Taiwanese actor Eddie Peng and Hong Kong based China born model/actress/ plastic surgery rumours plagued Angelababy.
Being Malaysian, i'm pretty chuffed at the prospect of seeing the natural beauty of Malaysia on display in the big screens. I'm ashamed to say though, i has no idea they were shooting the film in Malaysia until now.
Here are some photos and stills from the movie.
Here's the trailer.
And here's the music video of the theme song in case anyone of you is a JJ Lin fan.
You can tell this movie is going to be nothing but fluff and eye-candy with little substance, but i guess once in a while you need to watch movies like that.
Also, in case you're wondering , this is the trailer for the first movie.
My only grouse is, in the first instalment local acts like ah-Niu and Guang Liang were utilized to the benefit of the movie whereas in this version it seems that the the local actors act only as fillers with roles of villains, sidekicks of villains and overall carelefares.
Would i watch this show? If someone goes with me, yes!
